Smitty In Tha' House!

Go Smitty!

"Students also are fond of Brogan. Affable and quick with a quip, he blends easily into campus life. Every August, he helps freshmen move into dorms. Often unknown to new students and parents, Brogan said a mother once referred to him as 'the little guy with the dolly.'

Rick Smith, who graduated in 2007, said he once visited Brogan's office after 5 p.m., without an appointment. He was welcomed inside.

'That conversation meant more to me than almost anything else I experienced at FAU,' Smith said."

Re: Smitty In Tha' House!

Cool story Smitty.  I once had a problem with registering/dropping a class and I e-mailed Brogan about it.  He sent me a response the next day.  If I recall (it was like 5 years ago), I only got part of the money back…maybe the late fee but not the money for the credit or something…but the point was he personally took the time to respond and tell me how to best proceed.  I wish him the best of luck should he get this new job, but he will be sorely missed at FAU.  He is a real asset to the students of this University.

Why the title, Rick? LOL

Tomorrow, we all could wake up and start to realize a life without Brogan. Although he would be president for a little while longer while he transitions, LAB could begin - Life After Brogan.

President Brogan will still remain the president until someone is named interim president. Word on the street, and in the Sun-Sentinel, is that the interim president will be Provost Dr. John Pritchett. Some think he may be interested, and highly qualified, for the presidency.

Do you or anyone else know his position on the football program and the stadium?
